The No. 3 seed Miami Hurricanes men’s basketball team is preparing for a Sweet 16 matchup with the No. 2 Villanova Wildcats at KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky on Thursday night.
In order to prepare for their big game and a shot at the regional finals, the Hurricanes have taken a unique approach.
On Wednesday, a video surfaced of the Hurricanes enjoying some free time and keeping loose at the team hotel with “ballroom baseball.” Miami head coach Jim Larranaga split his team into a matchup of guards vs. bigs.
As you would expect, things got heated, and Miami big man Tonye Jekiri, a senior seven-footer, really tried to put on a show.
